Posted on 11/07/2017 7:51:31 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
Paul McCartney criticized President Trump's lax attitude toward climate change in a new interview with the BBC. "You've got someone like Trump who says that it [climate change] is just a hoax," he said. "A lot of people like myself think that's just madness."
"It's maybe a good time now to try and focus people's attention and say, 'Look, forget about [Trump] we can do something,'" he said. "It's not the total solution, but it's part of the solution. A lot of people have been saying this for a long time but there's resistance."

Shut up faul.
Paul, shut up and sing.
“A lot of people like myself think that’s just madness.”
By that, do you mean pot smoking minstrels?
You folks are mistaken. Paul is dead. Ever listened to a Wings album?
Well he has witnessed it whilst jetting around the globe singing and playing burning who knows how many tons of fossil fuels. Fidiot.
Most recent indications are that the sea level is dropping.
This must be cause for mourning among these people.
This from a guy who sings a madness song about Uncle Albert? High again???
Yeah, but he plays a guitar, doesn’t he? Doesn’t that qualify him to give us big time advise? Huh?
RE: Most recent indications are that the sea level is dropping.
Can you send a link to this piece of info? Thanks.
Nice private plane.
Hey Paul. Do you want to know a secret? Most Americans say Just let it be.
Don’t parrot the progressive fools on capitol hill.
Just play your songs about a day in the life,
while your guitar gently weeps.
Intro to Jurassic Park by Charlton Heston
You think man can destroy the planet? What intoxicating vanity. Let me tell you about our planet. Earth is four-and-a-half-billion-years-old. There’s been life on it for nearly that long, 3.8 billion years. Bacteria first; later the first multicellular life, then the first complex creatures in the sea, on the land. Then finally the great sweeping ages of animals, the amphibians, the dinosaurs, at last the mammals, each one enduring millions on millions of years, great dynasties of creatures rising, flourishing, dying away — all this against a background of continuous and violent upheaval. Mountain ranges thrust up, eroded away, cometary impacts, volcano eruptions, oceans rising and falling, whole continents moving, an endless, constant, violent change, colliding, buckling to make mountains over millions of years. Earth has survived everything in its time.
It will certainly survive us. If all the nuclear weapons in the world went off at once and all the plants, all the animals died and the earth was sizzling hot for a hundred thousand years, life would survive, somewhere: under the soil, frozen in arctic ice. Sooner or later, when the planet was no longer inhospitable, life would spread again. The evolutionary process would begin again. Might take a few billion years for life to regain its present variety. Of course, it would be very different from what it is now, but the earth would survive our folly, only we would not. If the ozone layer gets thinner, ultraviolet radiation sears earth, so what? Ultraviolet radiation is good for life. It’s powerful energy. It promotes mutation, change. Many forms of life will thrive with more UV radiation. Many others will die out. You think this is the first time that’s happened? Think about oxygen. Necessary for life now, but oxygen is actually a metabolic poison, a corrosive glass, like fluorine.
When oxygen was first produced as a waste product by certain plant cells some three billion years ago, it created a crisis for all other life on earth. Those plants were polluting the environment, exhaling a lethal gas. Earth eventually had an atmosphere incompatible with life. Nevertheless, life on earth took care of itself. In the thinking of the human being a hundred years is a long time. Hundred years ago we didn’t have cars, airplanes, computers or vaccines. It was a whole different world, but to the earth, a hundred years is nothing. A million years is nothing. This planet lives and breathes on a much vaster scale. We can’t imagine its slow and powerful rhythms, and we haven’t got the humility to try. We’ve been residents here for the blink of an eye. If we’re gone tomorrow, the earth will not miss us.
Says the ass that owns the whole Kintyre peninsula in the UK (Scotland)where the towns dump all their raw sewage into the ocean.
Just go over there and take a walk down the sidewalks along the shore. The sewer pipes run into the ocean.
The filth along the ocean front is unreal.
The noble class in the UK is alive and well. Jackie Stewart owns the island of Bute. He also gets the royalties for all the coal produced in the UK. Quite a bit of cash.
...then he promptly showed the current forecast map for the U.S. which read "below" and "well below" temps across much of the U.S.
...the(oops, I look like an idiot)look on his face just made me laugh, then I turned the TV off.
Paul, please tell us how you live like the average Brit. Show us how you do your part, then go FYS.
And that would be even worse than the sea level rising. Think about all of the harbors and fishing villages who would now be yards, if not miles, from the ocean. How would these poor people be able to survive then?
And think about the endangered coral reefs that would now be exposed to the air!
OMG, can't somebody do something? Things to remain the same for all eternity so that no one is harmed by the oceans rising or falling! It doesn't matter because, in the end, it's all white peoples' fault anyway!
Need I say ... [/sarcasm]
Paul McCartney’s Refusal to Recognize peer-reviewed, published, climate science based on observation is madness.
Believing in models that have consistently failed to match observations for 3 decades is stupidity.
No, just shut up.
